London Town 2016
1h 32min | Drama, Music | 7 October 2016 (USA)
In ’70s London, a 14 year-old boy is introduced to the Clash by his estranged mother. It changes his life forever.
This is a fabulous coming of age story, set against the back drop of London in the 70’s and the music of The Clash. The film is cleverly put together with a great mix of humour, emotion, gritty reality and music of The Clash.
The acting is superb particularly Daniel Huttlestone as Shay, although little Alice steals the show more than once! Jonathan Rhys Meyers could be Joe Strummer, with his attitude and great voice. It’s a movie that makes you think, laugh and cry.
A real British film, I have already seen this twice and will happily watch again!
